The 2022 Tundra finally brought in a new generation for Toyota’s flagship pickup after more than a decade of carryovers. This pickup not only boasted an all-new look inside and out, but it also gained all-new powertrain options. With this redesign entering only its second model year, we expect the 2023 Toyota Tundra to be a carryover model.
On the outside, the all-new Tundra boasts an upright design with hard angles and plenty of blockiness to satisfy truck traditionalists. It pulls a little from the smaller Toyota Tacoma and upsizes it to fit this larger body. Inside, the new Tundra features a sharp cabin that delicately blends trunklike angles and shapes with premium features and materials on higher trims. Plus, Toyota greatly reduced the clutter by eliminating many of the buttons and knobs. We expect the 2023 Toyota Tundra to remain the same inside and out.
Under its hood, the current Tundra features a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that produces 389 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Optionally, buyers can get an i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain that pairs the V6 with the 3.5-liter engine for 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, but four-wheel drive is available. We expect the same powertrain options in the 2023 Tundra.
The IIHS hasn’t tested the current Tundra for safety yet, so there are no ratings to share. However, the current Tundra comes slathered in safety tech, including standard automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, active lane control, automatic high beams, hill-start assist, and a rear-seat reminder. The only safety gear options are blind-spot monitors, a surround-view camera system, and side-mirror cameras. We expect the 2023 Tundra to have all the same features.
